As in the first warning sign calling names is about control and humiliation.We all have dealt with nicknames and insults, even among our friends.If people you don’t really care about call you names, it may not be as upsetting.If that person is your boyfriend or girlfriend it becomes a whole different story.Many abusers will humiliate or embarrass their partners in public as a method of control to “prove” that only the abuser can love them.A victim of emotional abuse may start to blame themselves for the abuser’s behavior and come to believe what the abuser says.
It doesn’t matter if the verbal abuse takes place in front of others or not.Emotional abuse can happen to any one and it may eventually escalate to physical abuse if it isn’t stopped. Abusers know that they can control you emotionally because no one wants to admit that someone else has treated them so poorly. Simply text “Love Is” to 77054 for confidential help.

I once wrote a review about dating Indonesian girls and where to meet them.You can still read it here: Where to meet Indonesian girls?You might be a nerd, a jock, a popular and be proud about it.Having others call you names might roll right off you.Constant criticism will compel the victim to “improve” him/herself.After all, if the person who loves you thinks you’re stupid then it must be true.Remember, if the person you love is making you feel bad about yourself then he/she really doesn’t love you. You should feel free to express who you really are with your partner.
